Subject: Nice Camera
Got one for my birthday and it took great pics - including the ones I took on our trip to DC and Niagara Falls. The small flash bulb was a breakthrough. Took Verichrome Pan 127 film.

Reasonably decent commercial. It should be noted that this comes from a 21 October 1959 episode of "Ozzie and Harriet".

On a side note, I like this commercial.

Subject: we had one
My family got one when they appeared and we used it for many years. It was a good, reliable little camera.

Cool commercial...
